I will be travelling around SE Asia this summer having finished three months of volunteer work in Cambodia and Northern Thailand. I finish up at the end of July, half thinking of checkin out a bit of Laos then maybe Chiang Mai before heading south to do the obligatory chillin out on the islands. Then head to Malaysia possibly check out the Jungle Railway, Penang and some of the eastern Islands before headin to Singapore to fly out to Oz.

If I happen to be criss crossing anyone elses plans at any point let me know and we might meet up for a bit!!!

Alternatively any advice or info on the proposed route would be much appreciated.

Oh yea about me, well I'm a 24 female from Ireland and fairly laid back, just lookin to do some exploring and develop a few images for the mental scrap book.

Hi Sile

I'll be back home in Singapore from June and will be frontdesking at a backpacker's hostel (to fund my shopping habits) so if you want to have coffee/explore Singapore, I'll be happy to show you around the place I call home :) Your community service thing sounds exactly like what i want to be doing sometime so maybe you can tell me abt that too.

Alright good luck travelling, and drop me a msg once you've got your plans up!

Hey Sile,

I'll be away from home for sometime this summer and will only be back in the last week of July before I start my new job, so if you're gonna be here at that time, yeah let us know!

Hi there, you're currently doing community service in Cambodia? will you be in Cambodia (particularly Siem Reap) sometime next week from 6 or 7 May onwards? I'll be heading there alone so it'll be great if you would like to meet up. I'd love to get involved in some community service as well.

Also, i'm if you'd like me to show you around. I'll be more than happy to.

i am planning to visit the south east asian countries including
Thailand, Viet Nam, Malaysia etc. I will start on 18th of July. I have not figured out a route yet but i am considering to start by flying to Philippines first then i am planning to take a circular route visiting Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, finally going up to China through Viet Nam. I am not sure if it can be finished with in a month but i will just be trying to spend as less as i can. I dont know how it will feel to travel alone so i would like to meet some people whom i can get together for a few days, more or even just for a day if our ways cross. I am trying to travel with a goal in mind, i m hoping to catch cinema events in each country so i will be trying to arrange some meetings or visit permits to some film sets and film festivals, in these two months, before starting to travel. I am also planning to document my trip on video besides taking pictures. So drop me a note if interested.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Hey there, I'm planning to do the whole SEA tour myself, fortunately, I'm already based in the Philippines. Should any of you manage to stop by these islands, just message me.

Looking for a travel companion as well to Thaiuland, Malaysia and Singapore in July as well.

Hey Sile! I'm planning on doing SE asia in late july, plans are pretty similar to yours. If you're interested in seeing a few places together, just let me know and we'll take it from there.

Hey Sile

I'm planning on heading to Bangkok at the beginning of August spending a few days there then heading up to Chiang Mai. After that start working my way further south to chill on some beaches and then head down to Malaysia for a few weeks. Sounds pretty similar to your plans so if you'd like to try and meet up somewhere along the way just let me know.

Happy travelling!
